Win32/cryptor Possible explorer.exe issue [RESOLVED]

Basically, tonight I started receiving alot of errors that said windows had to shut down. It happened every 30 seconds or so. I suspected a virus and downloaded AVG. Found the virus - Win32/cryptor is what AVG displayed. Once the virus was deleted from the AVG vault, I had to restart. Then when the desktop was supposed to come up, it did not. The only thing visible is my background. I searched online and found that I could still access programs by Control Alt delete and did so. It appears as though all of my stuff is there. However after searching for explorer.exe, it was not found. I read another post online that had me browse through the registry using control alt delete, to look in the shell folder i believe, for the file and if it wasnt there, then it should be added. If it was there then it was probably corrupt according to this source.
I did this and it appeared as though the file was there. Has the virus caused an error in a pathway? I know very little about computers, but Here is the Hijack log. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you much in advance.

Below I have pasted the results of the scan you suggested. I could not figure out how to turn off AVG. It did not seem to interfere with the scan, but I really know nothing about these things. I also am going to list the results of the virus scan and the infections that were removed just before my missing desktop problem started.

6 infections found
6 infected objects removed or healed
5 spyware found
5 spyware removed
306 warnings

Infections were
C:\WINDOWS\system32\A9ins_880808.exe Trojan horse FakeAlert.CJ
The next 4 were located in

C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\3RWQUADT\ag[1].exe Trojan horse SHeur2.CXM

C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\40V5WRXX\ag[1].exe Trojan horse SHeur2.CXM

C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\40V5WRXX\load2[1].exe

C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\CNQZXSFZ\b[1].exe
Trojanhorse Downloader.Generic3.VSL

Just as I was posting this an alert and vault message appeared for the following virus

C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\SAQWC4UT\av_2009[1].exe

Trojan horse Agent.AMHL

I am just about to remove it.

Now spyware was also detected
3 that were this


1 like this - that had an orange exclamation point beside it
also said that reboot was required to finish this action for it (removal i assume)

And finally, this, which i believe might be relevant to my issue


Infect note says :
Found registry key with reference to infected file C:\WINDOWS\BBSTORE\DSS\DSSAGENT.EXE

Now below is the result of the scan

NOTE: After the above Lop scan, I used the online windows live one care tool and 5 things were detected

The 3 that it listed specifically are


I then ran another scan with AVG with no results. I guess AVG doesnt pick these up? or possibly the Windows Live one care could have been mistaken?

Please download the OTMoveIt3 by OldTimer or from here.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the lines in the codebox below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    C:\PROGRA~1\Antivirus 2009
    [start explorer]
  • Return to OTMoveIt3, right click in the "Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTMoveIt3
Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes. In this case, after the reboot, open Notepad (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Notepad), click File->Open, in the File Name box enter *.log and press the Enter key, navigate to the C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles folder, and open the newest .log file present, and copy/paste the contents of that document back here in your next post.

  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.

I just wanted to thank you for your help. After a while, I ran sfc/scannow and i guess the exlorer.exe was replaced. I was able to run explorer and my desktop appeared. The errors that said windows had to shut down continued, so i decided to save all my files and then restore the whole system.

I am grateful for your help.
